Thank you for the wonderful reviews so far!

Thank You! For all you hard work with the pics and the reviews, I have really enjoyed them. My Favorite reviews are the ones that are done with pics because you do not have to visualize the food, you can see it. LOL!

Els has beautiful eyes like my Hubby

I am looking forward to your upcoming reviews.

Crystal Palace

I was really excited for this one! After all, Eeyore is my favourite, so one of the first things I wanted to do when I booked the trip was eat with Eeyore!

I had received a great time to get there before park opening, so we could get some photos of Main Street and the Castle with no one else in them – so that’s what we did! Unfortunately at that time of the morning it was really foggy, and you could just about see the Castle!

Empty Main St.

Nevermind, off we went to check in for the breakfast. There was quite a few people waiting here when we got there and we were left waiting for around 10mins. I think here was the only place we weren’t given a beeper, so we were worried that we’d miss them calling us.

We were sat down in the right side of the restaurant, and the server took our drink orders and explained that the characters would come around the restaurant in order. We could see that Piglet was very close by and I didn't want to miss him, so we put off going for food until he'd been.

Piglet's Fonz impression - Hey!!

Of course, then Tigger was quite near, so we waited until he'd been over.


THEN Winnie the Pooh was hovering near our table, so we put him out of him misery and waved him on over.... kidding, kidding... I gave him a huge hug!


Ooooh, you want to see some food pics? Well me too! We've been here 15mins and haven't been up to get some chow yet!
Here's my first plate:

We have: a waffle with cream, some cheese, bacon, sausages, and 2 types of breakfast potato. Everything was quite good, just some normal breakfast items. Looking back I should have really put syrup on the waffle as it was quite dry without, but never mind.

Els plate:

Just some normal breakfast foods again. Sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, and pancake.

We have a long break in characters, so we both go up for our second plates. Here is mine:

The mush on the plate is the breakfast lasagne - OMG this was horrible! Yeuch! Why didn't you guys tell me it had cinnamon in?! The breakfast pizza on the other hand was quite good! Then we've got some fruit, a bit of cake which I didn't like, and a bit of french toast which I don't think I ate.

I admit, I didn't get a photo of Els' second plate because...well, look who came along!



Atmosphere:
Loud, busy, manic, everything you'd expect from a Winnie the Pooh Breakfast in the Magic Kingdom at 8.25am on an August Saturday morning! I will admit though, I wasn't a big fan of the character interaction and was left quite disappointed, but I don't know what I was expecting. I mean, the characters came to the table, took a photo, signed my book and went, but they didn't play or joke around - maybe because we're a pair of overgrown kids, I don't know! I liked it just fine, although we had better interaction in Chef Mickey.

Overall: The food is just normal breakfast food, nothing to write home about really. We came just for the characters though and I think if you have kids then this is a really good place - we may have just come on a bad day, although saying that it wasn't 'bad', just a bit quick. Els mentioned to me just now that he thought it was very cold in there.

H RATING: 6/10
E RATING: 6/10
WILL WE BE BACK HERE? Probably not. There are loads more character breakfasts to try and I can meet Eeyore and Co. in AK.

I never saw the Mickey waffles, I think I missed them

I know this sounds weird, but it tasted a bit like a cheesy omelette... but it was good

I noticed what looked like a dab of grits on Els plate. Being as those are a southern staple- what did you think of them?

I have to agree with you on Crystal Palace. A few years back we went for breakfast with 4 kids and it was our first ever character experience and we really enjoyed it. Since then we have eaten dinner twice and have not enjoyed it as much as that first time. Not saying that it is out all together but deserves a break so we can try some new things as well.

I really enjoy reading your reviews. Thanks for taking the time to post them. Ya'll looked like you had a great time.

I could have sworn the last time I was there they had either pooh or piglet waffles. I can't remember which.

Thanks for sharing your CP review. That breakfast looks good, I could just eat that now! What is in breakfast lasagne, apart from cinnamon?

You look so cute in your pictures! I liked our character breakfast at CP, but once was enough. Next time we're sleeping in.

BTW, too bad you didn't get to meet the day-go orange Tigger like we did on our trip. My retinas are still recovering.

That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the picture! I have been lurking on your thread, often basking in the glow that is Tigger

Ooh, thanks for posting on CP breakfast. I'd been wondering if we wanted to do it, but now I'm thinking not. I'd rather try Chef Mickey's or go back to O'hana's, I'm guessing.

We had pretty blah character interaction when we went there for lunch a couple of years ago. I wonder if that's really normal or if we both just caught it on a bad day.

What a pity it was foggy when you got there!

Breakfast lasagne sounds yucky, what's in it?

You're back, !!!

Haley, thanks for the update, sorry to hear it wasn't that good.

Haven't been to CP for years and then it was dinner when our boys were much younger. I was thinking about doing breakfast there this August but, seeing as you describe it, normal breakfast foods without Mickey waffles, I think we'll pass. That and the fact that if we decide to go with the DDP, it would cost me a TS or $$ out of pocket.

So, same question, what is breakfast lasanga, and what is with the cinnamon? I get the breakfast pizza, kind of like a cheese omelet on crust (I think). I think the boys liked the breakfast pizza we had at one of our character breakfasts, sorry don't remember where, either Cape May Cafe in BC or, 1900 Park Fare in GF.

If you do decide to do another character breakfast, 1900 Park Fare would get my vote. The quality of the food at this breakfast (in GF) is IHMO a step above the others, especially the strawberry soup (yes, it sounds weird and looks even weirder), it's yummy.

Have you made your ADRs yet? My 180 mark is Saturday can't wait to start, I'm hoping to get all my choices (well actually my DHs choices, he somehow managed to pick out more TS meals than we have days ). (I let him know too, just to see if it gets me anything. )

I however picked our first meal at Disney, lunch at Beaches & Cream , nothing says vacation like burgers, fries and large ice cream sundaes. He's currently balking at the idea but I know he will come around, he can't resist a good burger and ice cream.

Sorry to go on and on, so, TTFN.
